Rev. Gwyneth Louise Osuch, 91, of Dubuque, Iowa passed away on February 27, 2017. Gwyneth was born on January 15, 1926 in Milwaukee, WI, the daughter of Herman and Florence (Olsen) Erion.

Gwyneth was a caring mother, a loving wife, and a pioneer on behalf of women's role in ministry. She was ordained a Presbyterian Minister in 1975. Gwyneth overcame innumerable obstacles in her life and never ceased learning and growing emotionally and spiritually whenever she could.

She inspired many while on her path through life by embodying determination, persistence, and courage. All for the glory of God.
